Meet Dora Jerusalem, features assistant to the assistant features editor of Modern Woman, a glossy magazine whose employees are all thin, rich and beautiful. New to London and desperate to succeed, Dora is drawn into a whirl of launches and parties where she meets a striking young man named Guy Boleyn. Follow Dora as she navigates her way through a maze of jealous colleagues, weddings that don't exactly go to plan and a destructive family secret - all to try and find the fairytale ending she's always hoped for. One Apple Tasted is set between 1980s London, 1950s in the Shires and a breathtaking trip to Himalayan India.
Part family saga, part classic love story, part coming of age tale, it is a perfect holiday read.
